Do you not realize we already have foreign terrorists incarcerated in U.S. prisons? Do you also not realize they are discussing closing Guantanamo and transferring those prisoners to U.S. facilities? We have detained international criminals in federal facilities for years.

No, they are not just for people who have legal presence in this country. Please provide something to support this claim. The reason people do not complain about their employers is that they are more afraid about making a claim and getting deported than of the employer.

If someone assaults them, rapes them, or commits any other crime against them, it will still get prosecuted regardless of the immigration status. And they can also bring civil suit. There has been quite a few threads opened in this forum to support this claim.

About Guantanamo, I don't really know. I have heard that if they were brought here they would have to be charged like everyone else in the U.S., and the ones, whose a case cannot be made against them, released.

They donít file claims, because they canít. They are not legally eligible to work in this country; which is the reason they canít legally collect unemployment benefits. Notice I said legally, because we know of course they do work; and true to form, they use fraudulent means to collect unemployment.

As much as you would like to grant all of the rights and privileges of citizenship to illegal aliens, you simply canít.

You keep posting this same thing. Sorry to say, it only works for you. It doesn't say anything about illegals having rights under our constitution.
